Children’s Health and the Environment Workshop & Symposium: Moving Research to Action for Healthy Kids

London, Ontario
June 26 - 28, 2017

Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre, Western University

An incredible group of speakers from around the world will be coming to London this June to share their latest work and insights related to children’s health and the built environment in 3 key areas: access to healthy food, promoting healthy physical activity including active travel and play, and healthy outdoor play and mobility.

We are inviting practitioners, policymakers, health promoters and providers, community service and care providers, designers and planners, educators and all others interested in providing healthy built environments for children, to join us for this informative and collaborative workshop.  Collectively we will work to move evidence from research and successful interventions into actions that will provide healthier environments for children in all communities.

Registration: Participants can register for one or more individual days or for the full 3-day conference.  Spaces for delegates are limited, so be sure to register as soon as possible to confirm your spot!  Registration opened March 22, 2017 at http://www.theheal.ca/chews2017.
